and do what we have always done. what we're going to do is change the fact that when he got elected and other people got elected whether it is in austin or the delegation that has been sent to washington they are not representing half of the people for the people and by the people, and they have done a masterful job of gerrymandering the elections. we have to combat that. we have got to compete everywhere, and we have got to make people fight for those votes. so we'll let rick perry continue to talk and we'll go do our job. >> michael: texas hasn't voted for a democratic president since carter in 1976, a democratic senator since benson in '88. how long will it take? >> your point a good one. we -- democrats have lost the last 100-state-wide elections since 1994, 0 to 100. so we know this is a massive challenge, but we also know there is a ton of energy on the ground there volunteers donors supporters across the state who are ready to have their voices heard. so the context is going to depend on a couple of key factors, and some of that is how fast can we get th
comments from an elected republican that person is quickly snapped back into line. that's what happened this week when ohio governor john kasich who i liked changed his position on gay civil unions. let's watch what he said. >> rob portman made news this past week with his position on gay marriage and changing it because of his son coming out. could you ever see a position, a time when you yourself might change your position? >> i really can't see one. i mean, i talked to rob and encouraged him, and, you know, if people want to have civil unions and have some way to transfer the resources i'm for that. i just think marriage is between a man and a woman, but if you want to have a civil union, that's fine with me. >> twice he said that one answer it's okay to have civil unions and gay marriage and civil unions are no small matter in ohio. in 2004, a ballot measure out in the general election amending the ohio constitution to outright ban gay marriage and civil unions and that was with the evangelical vote, and that's w.'s favor and winning him the presidential election with john customer
] it had gotten back down to its proper level, and all was well. you know, the election's over, and the president has been reelected, and the new congress has been sworn in, and we have basically what we had before other than the fact we spent $4 billion to have a president be reelected, the senate remain in one party's hand and the house remain in the republicans' hands. we have, we have effectively, we have gridlock. we have now, we have variations on these new terms like sequester, and so last week in washington they called the snow that never came the snowquester. we have things like the fiscal cliff that we would have thought you'd jump off of and die. so we're going from crisis to crisis, and nothing in the election really changed that. because our beloved nation is divided, the direction we should take is undecided as well. and meanwhile, the power of compounding is not our friend. our recovery is the weakest it's been in modern times. our entitlement programs, everybody recognizes, are unsustainable, literally unsustainable and grow in magnitude without change. our regu
. >> of course that is exactly what the strategy seems to have been in the last two election cycles is to write off vast swaths of the population. jonathan, i want to talk about the politics of this before we have to go. that is, obviously on the democratic party side, i mean, this is kind of a, you know, no brainer gate issue i would say for someone seeking the nomination on the democratic ticket. on the republican side, though, i'm not sure i agree with karl rove that the person who is their nominee would be an advocate. it certainly seems like it's going to be a much tougher issue in 2016 for someone seeking national office, given the numbers that chad was just talking about. >> very tough for someone on the republican side to not be in favor of marriage equality? >> correct. i mean, given the fund-raising issues. this is an area where republicans are raising a lot of money. it's obviously an area where vast swaths of the population have changed their opinion. >> right. >> i think it's going to be a harder position for republican in 2016. >> well, yes. if not 2016, certainly by 2020. look, i
to only fund candidates they consider viable in a general election. it was a message that drew a quick response from one of the party's top strat gists. >> the last thing we need is washington, d.c. vetting our candidates. if these experts who keep losing elections, keep getting rehired, raking in millions -- if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- [ cheers and applause ] they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot, though for their sake i hope they give themselves a discount on their consulting services. >> first of all, i live in texas, i don't live in washington. >> yeah, but -- >> second of all -- >> you're a little dirty here now. >> second of all, look, sarah palin should be agreeing with this. she didn't support todd akin. when he said the reprehensible things he said she wisely came out and said he ought to get out of the race. racking in millions, i'm a volunteer. i don't take a dime. i pay my own travel expenses
palin suggested that political architects like rove who lost elections in 2012 should get out of the business or run for office themselves. >> the architect can head on back to -- [ applause ] he can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> rove wasted no time going after palin. >> i don't think i'm a particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. second of all, i would say if i did run for office and win i would serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> perhaps alluding to the fact that palin resigned her governorship midway through the first term in office. >>> pope francis completed his first sunday as pontiff with his signature down-to-earth style. he started the day greeting crowds before leaving mass at st. peter's. he then went into the crowd catching his security detail off guard. hundreds of thousands poured into st. peter's square and erupted into cheers when their new pope stepped to the window to give his blessing which he closed with a casual "enjoy your afternoon. enjoy a good lunch." >>> vice president

obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fan
an election in which they think they got shellacked. the republican party lost because it's not conservative. it didn't get the base out. in the 2019 election. >> eric: your thoughts? >> greg: it's hard to take a rebranding suggestion from someone named reince priebus. it sounds like a disorder you get from a shampoo. it's true! the party doesn't need a makeover. they need a makeunder. the party has been victimized by the media who smeared them as uncool. no way to be a republican and be cool. it's associated also to being old. if you look at mccain, most people thought he was a cranky old guy, when he was a war hero who spent five-and-a-half years in a prison camp. most people didn't know that. they saw a cranky guy trying to beat a young black man for the office of the presidency. they need to simplify and say -- who do you want to be? you want to be an individual. you don't want to be part of the government. strive for achievement. how cool is that? that is what you get out to young people today. ref ject government influence. how simple is that? >> eric: is it smart for the g.o.p. and re
in a big election which is what we are looking at here. these two you will notice are not quarreling over ideas. they are -- it's not their positions on the issues vary widely. these are a position about whether karl rove should be applying his strategic knowledge to the campaign or whether that job should fall to somebody else. and in the end it doesn't really matter because the strategy and tactics of the upcoming campaign, which is still years away will be decided upon by the candidate and that candidate's team. so, you know, this is just sort of after action skirmishing i think. it may last a while. >> bill: isn't there a purity issue in the republican party now where sarah palin and some other very committed serves -- conservatives think that karl rove isn't pure enough to be a republican. he is a kel out. a watered down guy, the rhino thing. republican in name only. isn't that still in play? >> yeah, and that's been a feature of republican party politics for as long as i can remember. there was always this segment of the party for whom no one is conservative enough. there was a -- l
to acknowledge it or not, we have divided government. the american people elected a republican majority in the house, and our job is to make the case for our policies, find common ground where it exists and see if we can make this divided government work, and that is what we intend to do. we owe the american people a responsible balanced budget. that's what we are delivering today, and i urge support of this resolution. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. all time for debate has expired. under the rule the committee rises. the speaker pro tempore: mr. chairman. the chair: mr. speaker, the committee of the whole house on the state of the union having had under consideration house concurrent resolution 25 and pursuant to house resolution 1 2 i report the -- 1 2 i report the con-- 122 i report the concurrent resolution back to the house. the speaker pro tempore: the chairman of the committee of the whole house on the state of the union reports that it has had under consideration house resolution 25 and pursuant to house resolution 122 reports the concurrent resolution back t
the election. >> look, when you're in the business of trying to form a compromise, get the other side to even come to the table with some commonsense ideas, i'm not surprised that the president is a little lower than 50%. but, you know, we have a budget now, we have a moral document, a blueprint for the policy debates that are going to take place this summer. one of the interesting things that i enjoyed watching was at 2:00 a.m., is that we got a chance to -- i don't get those other channels, george. but, they had an opportunity to talk about the keystone pipeline, they had an opportunity to talk about a biannual budget. this gave the senators more than an opportunity to talk about big issues as well as the budgetary. >> scored a lot of political points with all of those amendments. >> they did. and while this is a normal piece of legislative business, one does wonder why they did it at 5:00 in the morning? but it is a good thing they got it done. >> you're nodding your head? >> yes, it does seem a little strange that they work sometimes on the hill in a slightly banana republican-esque way.
: i certainly knew about it. we had not seen anyone look at it in the 2012 election cycle. decided toe and i take a snapshot. it is something i have heard about. it has come up from time to time. in fact, it used to be back before they changed ethics rules about a decade ago in congress, there were relatives .n official payrolls so that has changed some. here are some other members of that "usa today" mentions. the democrat of virginia congressman paid his daughter when hundred $5,000 -- thousands of dollars in bonuses. that amount -- guest: much smaller in terms of doug's payment. a spokeswoman said he was looking for someone else to do the job. $33,000.d about the practice is not limited to veteran lawmakers. the idaho republican congressman who was elected in 2010 put his wife on the payroll. a few months after he got sworn in, may 2011, she earned about $41,000 over a two-year. -- timeframe. host: democrat line, welcome. john? manchester, new hampshire, independent line. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. , thank you foren reporting the facts. i believe almost ever
that parachutes into communities four months before an election. while that is how we operated years and years, and done well as compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side, the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the relationships were deep. they were authentic. >> he is absolutely right. >> yeah. priebus announced 10 million dollar plan funded by the rnc that would focus on establishing permanent footholds in african-american and asian communities. they would begin their campaign sooner. >> a great idea too. he was talking about a june or july convention. >> right. >> less debates. >> less debates. >> i think it's great. >> for the next presidential election cycle which makes a lot of sense. maybe seven or eight of them instead of 23. to stop the party from cannibalizing itself later on. it's sort of looking like rebranding. >> what is wrong? you don't like that idea? >> i think it will be hard to enforce. >> why is that? >> a lot of media organizations that want to do debates and the party can't stop those organizations from offering to do debates and candidates
, it will be increasingly difficult for republicans to win another presidential election in the near future. host: you heard chairman reince priebus talking about that $10 million inclusion effort, one of the many recommendations that he's set to give at the national press club this morning. you can actually watch that on one of our sister networks at 8:30. here's the headline from the "usa today" on that effort. republicans to spend $10 illion on inclusion -- host: we'll be talking about that in the first 45 minutes of the "washington journal" today. we're taking calls from just republicans. up first is bob from philadelphia, pennsylvania. bob, thanks for calling in this morning. caller: good morning. how are you, sir? host: good. your thoughts on this new effort? caller: i think that they are still missing a little bit of the point here. i think the biggest problem is uninformed voters. all they hear all day long is just background noise from mainstream media. i was a staunch liberal democrat. i truly was, until i started doing my own research and finding my own facts. even my mom and dad were staunch lib
government. and is somewhat weakened after a tough re-election fight. so from the white house perspective, he comes, the president comes here at a pretty good time to try to reach out to the israeli people. try to let them believe that he really does care about israel. that he has their back. they've been very much supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he
, and the republican national committee just out with a report, they are calling it the autopsy of the 2012 election. and they said we would have won if only we did a better job of getting our message out. good to have you with us and we're ready to give you a chance to join the conversation any time. give us a call at 866-55-press or join us on twitter -- actually you ought to do both, but if you want to talk to us on twitter, it's @bpshow, and on facebook, facebook/billpressshow. we are so excited this morning to welcome back to the studio. every once in a while we want to show that we are real people care. we really do care about sports. cindy is in studio again this morning. thanks for coming in. it's an exciting time we're ready to do our brackets this morning. >> i already have torn four of them up. this is one of those years where you are better to wait two minutes before tip-off and just filling it out and sending it in. and spend like two seconds on it. you can overthink this year. that's my theory. >> bill: all right. we're here with our whole team. of course we're coming
' election as poep and in front of new crowds in rome. >>> and president obama is wrapping up his trip to the middle east, and he also made stops in israel, the best bank during his trip. and he called on israel to start direct talks with the palestinians, and helped to broker an apology over the deadly commando raid, and pledged $200 million in aid to cope with the refugees from syria. >>> the concurrent resolution is agreed to. >> move to reconsider? >> without objection. >> the senate has passed a budget. >> you heard it here, right there, the senate has passed a budget. it's the first time the senate has done that in four years. by the way, it's the job of your elected officials to have a budget every year, and anyway. it followed a marathon vote-o-rama. lawmakers burned the midnight oil and then some, and the democratic sponsored proposal has a $1 billion preduction in spending. >>> all along the east coast, a bright streaking fireball caught peoples' attention last night. did you see it? if not, look here. it was captured by a dash cam in washington. it was probably a meteor. bec
. or is there another way out? jessica williams has more. >> with the divisive election behind us america's citizens are moving past partisan talking points to engage in a reasonable discussion of -- >> i hate the united states government. >> really? >> yes ma'am. >> why? >> because they are trying to oppress us. the united states government is retiring. >> right, okay. >> so apparently in texas people like larry and lynn are tired of living under the jackboot of a democratically elected government hell bent on stripping them of freedoms they hold dear. >> one of the things that texas is loves, you can still talk -- allows, you can still talk on the cell phone and text while you are driving. >> really? >> yes, that's how much freedom texans want to keep. >> and if we can't even decide on things like that, they are huge tyrants. >> jon: what does the word tyrant mean to you as opposed to what it means to everybody else. >> tyrant like hitler or lincoln who murders the people for their own political gain. >> you think lincoln is tyrant? >> yes, ma'am. >> it's not something you normally hear. >> no, it
sense. why are we giving them f-16s and tanks for this country whose elect hed president is associated with a terrorist organization and publicly called jews blood suckers and the descendants of apes and pigs injuries the president will be going to israel neck week and it is important that the american people give him a message rather than he give the israelis a message. that message is this. mr. president, americans stand with israel because it is a mirror image of our own freedom and democracy. and before you demand the israelis to give up land, ask the palestinians to give up terrorism. meantime, tell the israelis to build as much as they can and tell the palestinians that if they don't like this they can recognize the right of the israelis to exist safely and securely within their god it given biblical boundaries. that is probably never going to happen so i say pour the concrete, build the houses and let israel be strong. [ applause ] >> mike: a new, washington post abc news poll shows the president's approval rating at 50%. a 5% drop since the beginning of the second term just two
, and then i will stop on this, but they came, they had elections for an invisible government in 2005 again, as part of the 911 staying in the rest of the world. and women of course were not permitted to vote, but there was supposed to be another election in 2009, and they were told they might be able to. win 2019, there was no election for anybody. and then in 2011 came after the arab spring, suddenly there was an election. for men, not women. but there was a need to be seen to be giving something. so wedded been promised but not given was then given. so that's largely how things work. as saudi say, some of them say two steps forward, one step back. sounds -- some say two steps back in one step forward. but whatever do you take, it's a small margin for maneuver. yes, sir. >> thank you very much. i'm in communications. i had a chance to go to saudi once, and -- [inaudible]. they are talking about what you mentioned, they're talking about lots of, and it, like the people surround the kingdom. never talk about the king himself. >> it's always someone else's fault. >> in any kingdom or any kin
much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the senate, but three senators voting against it, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee. that's a new thing, tea partiers saying i'm even more conservative than paul ryan. is that the message? >> yeah. that is t
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
're >> they are certainly concerned with it. social media was very important for the election. it remains to be seen how it will hit into governing. they have not been able to make it work for them, for governing. but every president in a modern period has wanted to go around the white house press corps. in the eisenhower administration, when they made their press conference transcripts on the record in 1953 and on television in 1955, the press secretary was interested in getting things out directly. in one of his diary entries he said, we will go directly to the people. that has repeated itself from one administration to the next. the white house press corps continues to be important because those are the people on the ground writing about what it is the president is doing about the policies that he is initiating and what is going on within the white house. that information spreads. you can have something like the huffington post that will be pushing up articles that are in the new york times. i would be wary in thinking i could simply go around them as the white house press corps is irrelevant. it rem
